                        We just returned from a simply wonderful trip to San Juan Island. The trip couldn't have been better. Our primary mission was to experience the Orcas. We took 3 trips with the Western Prince Whale Watching all were fantastic. This unit was very nice; perfectly located between Roche and Friday Harbor, with simply the best views of anywhere we have ever stayed. The wildlife was amazing, porpoises, deer, fox, and a bald eagle right by the deck was breathtaking. After renting a place like this it makes the return trip easy---you simply see when Darius has availability.

                        We absolutely would recommend this beautiful home. The views off the deck of the water and Mount Baker are spectacular! This home is warm and inviting and has all the amenities. It is nestled back in the woods with walking trails and several different sitting areas to relax and take in it's fabulous surroundings. The weather this particular week was the best we have experienced with everyday clear and sunny, just perfect! It is located close to Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor and we enjoy going to both. Perfect place to spend a vacation. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.

                        This was our first venture to San Juan Island and we were extremely grateful this property was available for our use. It's location is wonderfully positioned close, but not too close, to both Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor. As we traveled the forested single lane road up to the home, we knew we were arriving at someplace very special. This is a home that the owners obviously care for and maintain very well. They were most gracious in providing a welcome and had everything we possibly needed available at our disposal....even a piano and a telescope, both of which were used extensively. They also shared their obvious love of landscaping, as it was so very well done. This home would be a delight in any area of the country, but its vistas of the water and the mountains beyond are without peer. The two person glide chair on an independent deck facing the water was my favorite as its view of Mount Baker was breathtaking. From the main deck, we were able to see a sunrise one clear 5:00 AM experience I've had in a long while and well worth setting the alarm for. I heartily recommend this property and would rent it again without hesitation or reservation.

                        Without question this is an absolutely wonderful place to stay! Four girlfriends just spent a delightful week here. The view is spectacular and such a peaceful settinng. It is very private, evenings we're chilly and we had a nice fire in the fireplace. Friday Harbor offers many unique shops and several good restaurants to choose from. Zip lining is fun and also scooted around the island. We all,decided this has been our favorite house and place to stay of all our trips.

                        Stayed at this house with 2 other couples in early July. The house was wonderful, many great amenities, however we were so busy in the island that we did not get a chance to take advantage of them all. The views from the deck were spectacular. Owners were very accommodating, even changing their plans to allow us to stay.

                        What a piece of heaven! Huge and beautifully arranged home with gorgeous view! Large outdoor balcony with BBQ and seating for wonderful evening dinners. Several rooms; you can literally get lost exploring the game room with pool table, cinema room, study, art studio, indoor hot tub in master suite, etc. The house is located in a quiet secluded area of the island, but the house is so lovely, the view so spectacular, and the house so self-contained, that we had to force ourselves to go explore the island! We rented scoot coups from Susie's Moped Rentals and had a great time touring the island. Great trip, great island, great home!

                        A beautiful home, situated in nature's wonderland gave all 4 of us a terrific feeling of relaxed satisfaction. The amenities of the home are many and leave little to be desired. The beauty of the straits can be enjoyed from many rooms of the home as well as from several viewing decks. A walk in the surroundings wooded area is very enjoyable and may occasionally bring you upon grazing deer. Those times you may wish to explore the Island, there's plenty to see, from one end to the other. Coming from Southern California, I wasn't expecting much in the way of restaurants. I was pleasantly surprised to find a number of them were extremely good, easily achieving a rating in the 20's of ZAGAT Guide. We certainly intend to return next year. Once you find somewhere that provides that much enjoyment, you make it a point to get back to it.....................

                      About the owner: High tech executive who decided to semi-retire with his wife Karen and build their dream house in the San Juan Islands.

                      Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor:
                      The eastside of Friday Harbor has the best views on the island. Our home overlooks Deer Harbor on Orcas island and we enjoy some of the most spectacular sunrises over Mt. Baker.
